Are you looking for a way to help refugees and immigrants feel welcome in our city?
Nationalities Service Center (NSC) in Philadelphia provides a wide-range of services to meet the needs of newly arriving refugees, victims of human trafficking and unaccompanied children. They are the largest and most comprehensive provider of services in the Greater Philadelphia region. Their goal is to welcome refugees, victims of human trafficking and unaccompanied children and put them on a path to self-sufficiency and create a safe and permanent residency.
The NSC relies heavily on volunteer donations to furnish their refugee apartments and clothe their refugee families. Their greatest current needs are for blankets and toys for the holiday season.
If you would like to contribute, there are many ways!
